Sustainable design, resource efficiency, and energy conservation are essential principles to reducing resource consumption, minimizing damage to the natural environment and designing a built environment that enhances and enriches our quality of life. The challenge is striking the balance between meeting our needs today and ensuring a sustainable environment for the future.
